any way you slice it. seniors get skittish when it comes to medicare. in 2008 barack obama took florida, the majority of seniors voted for john mccain because they were hesitant how the health care reform would take place. talking about ryan and medicare and seniors, it comes down to florida. >> florida, florida, florida, david. she is right about one thing. if you look at the poll, the one area where you see consistent movement poll after poll after poll toward barack obama has been with senior citizens. you know as well as i do, they are a consistent voting block. they go to the polls in larger percentages. has the obama administration been successful at branding the medicare plan of the republicans as voucher care and are senior citizens moving away because they're afraid of the medicare changes? >> the ryan budget plan existed in terms of the 2010 election when republicans won 65 plus seniors by 21 points. part of the dynamic that exists here is, in fact, seniors are really unhappy with president obama's health care plan. what you see is this significant concern handling med
the national debt. i will put medicare and social security in a lockbox and protect them. and i will cut taxes for middle- class families. i believe it's important to resist the temptation to squander our surplus. if we make the right choices, we can have a prosperity that endures and enriches all of our people. if i'm entrusted with the presidency, i will help parents and strengthen families because, you know, if we have prosperity that grows and grows, we still won't be successful unless we strengthen families by, for example, ensuring that children can always go to schools that are safe. by giving parents the tools to protect their children against cultural pollution. i will make sure that we invest in our country and our families. and i mean investing in education, health care, the environment, and middle-class tax cuts and retirement security. that is my agenda and that is why i think that it's not just a question of experience. >> governor bush, one minute rebuttal. >> well, we do come from different places. i come from west texas. the governor is the chief executive officer. we know how

our debt for wars, for example, that were not paid for -- as i understand it when you pay for medicare and medicaid and some of the interests, everything else is paid for by loans. from china. if you want to talk about the numbers here, you have to talk about how to pay your bill. that's like having a conversation with your spouse, who i know and love, and you're going to talk around it but you're not going to look at the checkbook. that would be bologna and she wouldn't buy it either. >> in fact, you gave the answer paul ryan should have gave to chris wallace, tamron. >> really. >> that's what he should have said to chris wallace. we cannot afford to keep governing ourselves like this. bravo. in fact, we should call the rnc, they may have an opening at the rate we're going they're going to have openings come november 7th. >> i'm not up for hire, but thank you very much. great pleasure. thank you. up next, new reports say romney's advisers are divided over whether to attack president obama over libya or stay focused on the economy? this as the obama administration is still under fire o

the issue of medicare is factoring into the presidential race in three key states. i think these polls do more than anything to prove how this has been a substance free campaign on both sides. it's been a campaign according to mika brzenzski that has been a sign campaign. medicare is considered extremely important for 50% of those polled and that makes a lot of sense. voters in those three states were also asked the question, what the medicare system would look like in the future. roughly 6 in 10 said the program should maintain the current system of benefits and that number peaked at 65%. one of the most stunning numbers to me, and it is unbelievably depressing, in this age of, you know, where simpson and bowles are running around the country trying to tell americans desperately what needs to be done to save this country from falling off a cliff financially, over 70% of voters in florida said, seniors in florida said that you don't have to cut medicare to take care of the debt. why do you even say that? >> please, cut my benefits. no one is going to say that, joe. you know that. >> how a
are raising taxes and cutting medicare. in fact, there has been a study released this week. the people look at his spending plans and all of the debt they create and interest that its charge. he will raise taxes on the middle class as well by some $4,000 per family. the american people do not want more taxes. they want less spending and more growth. we will do that and get america back on a balanced budget. [applause] i do not want to raise taxes on any one. this president seems to think that keeping our taxes the same as they are now is a huge tax cut. only in washington would do thing keeping taxes as they are is a huge tax cut. hot i will find a way to bring our taxes down -- i will find a way to bring down our taxes. we will give the middle class a tax break. [cheers and applause] you know when it comes to creating jobs that paul ryan and i have a plan. it is not a repeat of the last four years because we cannot afford four more years of the last four years. it is an entirely different direction. it has five different parts. number one, we will take advantage of our energy, coal, gas, o
do? it ends medicare, makes it a voucher. dramatically cuts assisttons education in our country. as someone who grew up poor, the first of my family to go to college, i want pell grants to be out there and keeping student interest loan low so every child can achieve an education. it is important to do this tpwh a balance way for middle class interest. >> when i'm there we're going to have a budget that i will work on and advocate for and compromise along the way without sacrificing principle with my colleagues. you talk about congressman ryan, it's more of the same. it's the other guy's fault. you've been there a long time. your party has been the majority in the senate for a long time, i think your entire term. i have some very specific plans. we have discipline here in new jersey. it's not always pretty but when we deal with our state budget we do what we need to do. we don't get to print money so we work hard and we have in the last few years to make things right. we now spend 24% of the economy on government. i want to get it down to its historic place of closer to 20% over
plans, he wants to support entitlement programs like social security and medicare and even consider, wait for it, compromise. what does murdoch's move to the center, what does that say about the tea party overall now? >> i don't think that there's any expectation that the tea party in indiana would be able to carry one candidate through the general election. i'm not sure that there's enough quote-unquote tea party voters out there even in a red state like indiana. to carry one candidate. what richard is doing is expanding out a little bit. we, we sat down with him here on friday. and he, he talked to us a little bit. and expounded on that concept of compromise. what's interesting is that going back to your point, we played the clip from right after the primary. richard has gotten a little bit more articulate in how he talks about these things. but his fundamental concept of compromise has not changed all that much. on fiscal issues, for instance, still feels very much the same way. we pressed him extensively on that. >> maybe it hasn't changed, but the rhetoric sounds different. the
of seniors on medicare hundreds of dollars on their prescription medicine. and millions of americans have actually gotten a rebate from their insurance company if that company -- you got one? [applause] i wanted to say -- i mean, she was a supporter. but i didn't know about -- [laughter] you get a rebate if the insurance company spent too much on demitch costs and c.e.o. -- administrative costs on -- and c.e.o. bonuses. this health care has secured new access to preventative care like mammograms and cancer screening was no co-pay, no deductible, no out-of-pocket costs for more than 20 million women. [applause] and now most health plans are beginning to cover the cost of contraceptive care. which is vital for women's health. doctors prescribe contraception not only for family planning but as a way to reduce the risk of ovarian and other cancers. and it's good for our health care system in general. cause we know the overall cost of care is lower when women have access to contraceptive services. now, before this new law, many health ce plans charged high deductibles or co-pays for these prev
and medicare. it wasn't like he never responded to it. >> but isn't the format in washington is that you get in a room with someone and you go at it and you try and figure it out? >> that's what we're asking. has he been too isolated? listen, we talked to him. the guy is brilliant. he really is. but has he become so isolated there's not the back-and-forth with even democratic leadership? because the democrats will tell you, he doesn't talk to them a whole lot. >> he doesn't listen. >> and he doesn't listen to them. >> he's pretty confident of his own views. look, there are a lot of elements to why the performance was bad starting with he's not that great a debater. he ended up in a room with a guy from his first answer was not the version of mitt romney i think he practiced against. so all the prep he did -- and he didn't do as much prep as he might have -- all the prep was against john kerry channeling the mitt romney we've seen for the last five years. >> what's interesting, mika -- >> we ought to be looking at that. >> we have steve schmidt on yesterday. steve schmidt would call me during
medicare. you might as well say good-bye to it. yeah, and i don't know if you've done any research on obama or not, but he is a muslim. he is -- got a socialistic view on the, you know, economy, the government, the whole nine yards. if he had his way, we'd be a socialistic country. okay. really do. pay attention to fox news. >> a volunteer for the clay county republican party in florida made a series of calls on behalf of her preferred candidate, one of those calls got caught on an answering machine and then it got played on a local radio station wmnf and then it got picked up on gawker and now this is part of the romney campaign messaging, too. just like the yacht thing. the leader of the clay county, florida, republicans, for what it's worth, says the volunteer was off script completely. on making those remarks. yeah, you think? joining us now is chris hayes, host of the msnbc weekend morning show "up with chris hayes." he's the author of "twilight of the elites." thanks for being here. >> it's great to be here. >> i want to ask you about the obama care decision specifically. so, romney d
not shy away from being wonky. not that everybody is going to follow every medicare reform plan you have, economic policy you have. they want to be treated like adults. if the president gives us a hint of an agenda that would be a breakthrough. >> could you dissent a little from david. we have the highest right direction number since june of '09. there is a growing sense of confidence. it's an improvement. the people who think the economy is getting better has increased by 17 points since july. i mean, there's really a sense-- the president has to confirm to them that he, a., his policies have made a difference in this improvement, that they are right in sensing the improvement, and they can take it from here. when asked who is better prepared to lead the nation over the next four years, by a 13-point margin, 49-36, people say the president-- 35, say the president over mitt romney. even people who are voting for mitt romney don't think he's better prepared. that's what the president has to accomplish, i think. >> woodruff: david, finally, and quickly, you touched on this earlier. there i
